. it was enough. it got us through that period. then we said, well, we've got to two months until the debt ceiling. it's the 17th today and it just feels different. we're not -- we don't have a clock on cnbc showing the days to the debt ceiling when we hit it. it just seems like the market b is getting desensitized and we figure something -- it's not going to be the deal that we thought. is that true? do we know that, that it's not going to -- you know, derail this? >> my sense is, joe, you might be back to a clock in about a month. i think the one thing we learned from the fiscal cliff was don't really pay attention to anything that comes out of washington until "d" day. >> so that is what we're doing now. we're looking at individual results. >> and i think that's actually what people want. they want to trade in the market. the nice thing about you is you're talking about earnings, you're talking about things that matter to the market right now. everyone i talk to is saying i'll deal with the debt ceiling when i get there. actually, if there was a lot on worry there, we wouldn't be going, budding

deadline coming up as the so-called debt ceiling. something most americans have not even heard of before two years ago. i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. these are bills that are ready been racked up. we need to pay them. i am willing to compromise and find a common ground on how to reduce our deficit america cannot avoid another debate with this progress about whether or not they should pay the bills that they have already racked up. if congressional republicans refused to pay america's bills on time, so security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we may not be able to pay our troops or on our contracts with small business owners. food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down those of nuclear materials would not get their paychecks. the rest of the world would ask if the united states of america is in fact a stay at bat. market to go haywire and

and i'm surprised is that ryan basically came out yesterday and said we'll push the debt ceiling thing off for three months. you have china coming up with good news, better than expected gdp. ge which used to be the bellwether people focused on coming out. lots of good comments. good earnings. europe, that is sort of like stabilizing. and i do think there is more easing there. and japan which hasn't had a really roaring economy for two decades, you've got omni in there now. they're going for 2% inflation instead of deflation. don't forget how large that economy is relative to the world economies so i think the market has nothing but not green shoots but blossoming flowers. go buy it. >> so why then, doc, are you still more cautious than the other guys? >> partly because, judge, i like owning options instead of owning equities. i just do. the only times i like owning equities are like for instance when joe and i fight about stocks with nice yield. i mean whether it's a verizon or whether it is intel, if i'm talking about a 4% dividend yielder that i can get in there and write options ag

the table for now. obviously things like the debt ceiling and the dysfunction in washington are reasons for concern, but i think one of the factors that's underpinning the equity market is the fact that bonds rates, u.s. interest rates, it's a tired story and folks are getting very frustrated fighting bernanke. >> gordon, let me ask you what you're seeing in terms of flow. first of all, what happened at the end of the day here? i turn my eyes away from the ticker for a moment, and the market is up 53 points. what was the flow at the end of the day, and would you go into next week holding technology? is that another weak spot, do you think, next week as stephanie just pointed out that a lot of industrial names, the real economy stories, are going to start driving things? >> well, maybe. they were buying beamary little bit and beamer reports next week, too. you can't turn your head for a minute in this market. washington puts out a little blush they will start cooperating with each other, that seems to be a little bit of a catalyst. kind of gave us anni impetus foa bust. if you go back tw

low. that's where the complacency comes from. you see it there. as we move into the debt ceiling debate, it can be far harder to solve than the taxes, we think the market can be down for a while, and before it comes back up. >> so you're looking for a decline, and perhaps that is an entry point for some. do you agree with that? >> i think any decline is an opportunity to buy, maria. i'm very, very bullish on u.s. equities and one of the main reasons i am the u.s. energy story which i think is a story that's not being told as well as it should be. in 2012 the u.s. oil production was up 16%. that was the biggest year over year increase in u.s. oil production since 18 at which just happens to be when we started producing oil so if we think about what's going on. we have right now -- right now we produce oil at 80%, the same price the rest of the world does. we produce natural gas at 25% of the price the rest of the world does. we have cheap energy here in the united states and we feel that will drive manufacturing back to the united states, create jobs, and when all this political s
